I’m a newbie, been through a few tutorials and discovered that Blender is a really powerful 3D modeling app.
Before I get completely lost can anybody quickly indicate if I am learning the right tool.
What I want to do is import a simple csv file with x,y,z co-ordinates (about 2,500 points planned, 200 so far). Then I want to create a surface model by joining up the points and rendering the frames created. Then I want to export the surface model in a dxf file for further processing in SketchUp. Smoothing would be a nice extra but not essential.
Is Blender the right tool for such an application?
I have checked the dxf export format, that’s fine. The import format is a little trickier as there doesn’t appear to be a csv format import. I could top and tail the csv file to make it into an AC3D format, so not a show stopper.
Will Blender join up the 3D dots ok? I can’t find a tutorial that addresses this scenario but maybe you know of one that I could follow.
